Today I’m sharing with you some Halloween Cupcakes I made, plus my everyday recipe for cupcakes.
6oz Self Raising Flour
6oz Caster Sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract
If you want chocolate cupcakes use 5oz of self raising flour, and add 1oz of cocoa powder.
I use this recipe all the time, and just adapt it to make whatever I want, this is the recipe I used when I baked with my mum as a child and so I know it very well. I don’t actually weigh it out when I bake, I have a spoon that I use and I do the butter by eye. I actually get really frustrated when I’m using a new recipe and have to weigh it out.
Step 1: Pre heat the oven to 180 fan
Step 2: Cream the butter and sugar together.
Step 3: Add in the self raising flour and mix together
Step 4: Add in the eggs and vanilla extract
Step 5: Your cake batter will be thick, so add a little water to loosen it.
Step 6: Spoon into cupcake cases
Step 7: Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Step 8: Once baked, leave to cool.
Step 9: Decorate.
I bought my frosting and decorations from the supermarket, but you could go all out with decorations. I recommend icing pens, strawberry laces, jelly fangs, or jelly sweets in other Halloween shapes.
